I’m not a big fan of summer, spring and fall yes, but not summer. Tell me your woes about spending all winter in the gym running or having to ride the trainer 2-3x per week. Or how it sucks swimming indoors all winter. No sympathy here. Why? Because it’s going to be 102 this week, thats why. While the rest of Canada/Minnesota/North Dakota, it’s all the same, is finally shovelling the last of the snow away, we start heading indoors to run, bolt our bikes to the trainers and wish we could swim anywhere but our 90F outdoor pools. It’s getting hot. And more sunny if that is possible. And hot. Did I mention 100+ temps for 3+ months. It’s like Canada…..in reverse. I feel sorry for any idiots who live in the midwest or other frozen parts of North America in the winter then come here for the summer. It just looks like I’m in Minnesota in the winter while I’m in Tucson for the summer. Pale, white, almost ghost like because of all the sunscreen I have to use. It’s like a reverse tan. Get up, put on sunscreen, grab other bike, try to go ride outside, turn around because it’s hot, ride bike pre-bolted on trainer for 2 hours. Then go swim in the bathtub. Yeah.
Why do I live in Tucson? It’s the other 9 months of the year with near perfect outdoor weather.
